For many years the academic institutions have made a useful technique for the shaping of the metal glasses which is an effective material for the new generation.

The casing of the electronics is quite in demand by the people but yet they were not successful in shaping a perfect one.

Schroers spent most of the time is past century in trying different means for the shaping of the complex geometrical structure. The used a different super freeze material apart from melting the BMG substances and forcing them to melt on high temperature. By this process BMG material turns into soft form and easily changes its shape.

With the help of this method Schroers do forming of thermoplastic. BMGs are changed in a plastic shape and as a result it does not take large amounts of energy.

From that point they focus on the production of the BMG sheets, that is the most useful in experimentation for applications.

By observing the results of his technical method he introduced his own company Super Cool Metals and owned by the Yales University.

Till now he focused of the production of things on small scale but like watches and sensors, the next level was now cases of Smartphones and it was something challenging for him.

He and his team members are producing the cases by heating the BMG sheets and now on next step they are making advance step of creating waterproof Smartphones.

There are many parental tracking applications available in order to monitor the activity of your teens. You can install the apps in the Smartphone like the Life360, MamaBear, My Mobile Watchdog and Canary and a few others.

According to a few parent, using the parenting apps is a good thing to keep an eye on their kids while the privacy experts and a few psychologists notified that there are also the cons and pros. So, the parents must consider them before the sign up.

TeenSafe is a service that will allow the parents to keep an eye on the children’s social media activities, location, call log and the text messages. According to the co-founder of the TeenSafe, Ameeta Jain, “over 500,000 users are using the app at the time”.

Jain told to the media that, “being a mother of two children, I was worried about keeping an eye on the children’s digital world”.

And that thing was good enough to launch the parental security service that was launched back in 2011 and is being updated consistently till now.

According to the “Teens & Technology” Pew Research survey 2013, the Smartphones with the GPS service offers an option for the constant tracking and the 37% of the teens are using the smatphones.

Well, the parents can easily log on to the TeenSafe account on their own Smartphone, tablet or the desktop in order to see their children’s activities from their iPhone or the Android phones. According to the Jain, “the service helps parents to track the online harassment and it keep the teens out of the dangerous situations like getting into the car with a drunk driver”.

Jain added, “If we do not know what is going on in the digital world of our child, then we cannot protect them or we cannot guide them at all”.

According to a psychologist and expert of the teen behavior, Barbara Greenberg, “the regular monitoring can damage the relationship between the parents and the teens because it really gives a message of disbelief”.

At the maturing stage, the kids are expected to make mistakes, but f they feel that they are monitored constantly by the parents and they will fix everything every time, then the child can develop a lack of self-confidence and the increased nervousness – according to Barbara Greenberg.

The big concern is that the tracking applications and the services can also be used to track the people those are not the children of the users. Without any doubt, there are many circumstances in which the tracking apps & services can be abused.

60% Of The Mobile Applications Use Personal Data

The confidentiality and poor security problems that mobile applications have is not a new topic. Unpleasant incidents appear regular in the pasrt few years. According to a recent survey compiled by the Global Privacy Enfrocement Network, the problem is more serious than we would have thought. At least 60% of the available apps for mobile devices like Android and iOS are a potential source of problems.

This study used 1211 apps available on Android and iOS and analyzed the way they protect the privacy of the user.

According to the survey results, at least 60% of the total number of apps don’t explain clearly the ways in which they collect, process and use personal data. It seems that 43% of apps display the terms using a font to small to be seen on small screens, 31% ask too many personal details and 30% don’t display any information relevant to the user’s privacy.

The most common personal data required are geographic coordinates, but the study also included on their list of intrusions the access to the calendar, the agenda, the call log or the terminal’s hardware identification. These results are valid on a global basis, but the analyzed data at the level of each country show that the situation may become even more serious.

These results are not surprising considering that neither EU nor the US have clear legislation in this area.

European authorities have developed a guide for software developers which covers the protection of personal data, but this guide is just a recommendation.

The American authorities still failed to adopt a law aimed to solve this issue.

Microsoft Kills Nokia. The Phones Will Be Called Windows Lumia

With over 150 years of activity, the Nokia brand will most certain disappear. Probably this year.

There is a document that’s circuling inside Microsoft, consulted by Phone Arena, which shows that the American producer of software will give up gradually from using the Nokia brand for Windows Phone phones.

The new models of Nokia Lumia 730 and Nokia Lumia 830 will most likely be named Windows Lumia. Microsoft will give up completely the Nokia brand this year even before the sales campaign for the Winter Hollidays starts.

However, the people from Microsoft will act with caution and won’t make a sudden change. In the future advertising campaigns they will not use the Windows Phone logo on future terminals. They will apparently use the simple logo of Windows. In fact, even now, visitors of the regional Nokia sites are redirected to Microsoft sites.

Last September, Microsoft, the largest software manufacturer in the world took the decision to acquire Nokia for 5.4 billion euros, of which 3.8. million euros for the phone division and 1.6 billion for patents owned by the Finnish company.

In 2014, the American company created the Microsoft Mobile division. This launched an unexpected surprise for smartphone users. They launched Nokia X, a phone made by Microsoft but which also works with Android from Google.

This spring, Stephen Elop, CEO of Microsoft Devices confirmed that the Nokia brand will continue to exist only a short period of time.

When Microsoft announced the launch of the new Lumia 930, they erased any mentioning of the Nokia brand from their documents released to the press and kept them only on their terminals

An American Company Offers $10/month For Personal Information From Social Networks

An American company called DataCoup offers $10 per month to all those willing to allow their activities on the internet to be monitored. Each Like on Facebook, every search on Google and every message on Twitter will also be sent to DataCoup’s data base. After collecting this information, the company plans to sell them. DataCoup actually does what Facebook and Google don’t. The company pays its users for their personal valuable information that they have so far put at the disposal of internet giants for free. No user has received anything in return until now.

When you socialize or you are looking for information on the internet you help those from Facebook, Google, Yahoo or Twitter to earn money. All these companys will monitor your activity and, depending on your preferences, they will determine what adds to show you. Thus, advertising is much better targeted. DataCoup promises to help users to assert personal data which they already leave willingly on the internet.

Those who will accept to be monitored by an application produced by DataCoup will be paid up to $10 per month. The application can connect to all the accounts an internet user has: from Facebook and Twitter accounts to internet banking accounts. The application follows all the activity: posts, Likes, searches and transferred files.

Users can choose the amount of information they will give to DataCoup. However, the less information you give, the less money you receive. $10 per month is actually a maximum amount and only those who will accept the overall monitoring will receive it.

Just like Facebook, Google or Twitter, DataCoup will use all the data collected for commercial purposes. They will five all the information to those who develop market studies. While Facebook and Google are just monitors of their own users, DataCoup will collect information from all users of all social networks and online services. The down side is that at the beginning, DataCoup will only monitor about 10000 users.

The company hopes to expand this system in the near future but we’ll have to wait and see if DataCoup’s business plan is good or not. They will make users realize that their online activity is very valuable.
